Acid Pickle Cleaner Cuts Rust, Oxide Scale on Steel

Henkel’s Bonderite C-IC 182C is a phosphoric acid pickle formulated to eliminate rust and oxide scale on laser-cut steel parts. Suited for both hot- and cold-rolled steel, the metal cleaner can be used as a conventional pretreatment spray or on an immersion line, and features biodegradable surfactants that facilitate its disposal into waste streams.

According to the company, the acid pickle provides improved surface wetting and reduced flash-rust formation, and by eliminating oxidation, it improves adhesion of paints applied to finished metal components and minimizes chipping caused by impact. It is said to minimize rework, lower production costs, improve aesthetics and potentially eliminate cleaning processes altogether for lightly-soiled substrates.
